WYSIWYG editing interface? (12 posts)

    I'm new here, so I don't know if you already discussed on this but... one of the things I mostly miss on my WP installation is a real, working WYSIWYG editing interface. The actual interface helps a lot with HTML tags, I know, but all those tags can be confusing, especially if you are writing a long post (and I often write long posts). What about implementing a WYSIWYG editing interface, maybe using existing pieces of software like HTML Area?

    I think some have come up with a few, and Matt mentioned recently that WP now has 3 such plugins ?

    The problem is that a plug-in must be installed separately: what I meant is to add the WYSIWYG editing interface in the standard package.

    Ah........ well if they did, the first thing I would do is install a plugin to pull it straight out :)

    Of course there should be a possibility for the geek user to disable the WYSIWYG editing interface and use the normal (taggy) one ;) By the way HTML Area allows this.

    Don't forget that 'geek users' are the ones helping you w/ questions and writing this wonderfully amazing piece of software ;)

    It seems that if a WYSIWYG editor was implemented, it should be Xstandard. It produces valid xhtml.

    I agree, xstandard is the way to go. It creates clean and validating code. And the lite version is totally free.

    I totally agree. xstandard looks very good, because of the clean code it produces. The other one tinymce.moxiecode.com, looks potentially good too. I think it's important to output valid clean code, as WP allready does. A really simple WYSIWYG-editor with just the basics would be enough i think.

    But how do you register a plugin in HTMLArea which is included to WordPress? (Like ContextMenus)
